This is a must. My children had a 'bucket and spade' good choice, great for my younger kids. Ice cream is made fresh on site daily so lots of different flavours. Good prices too.

The ice cream is delicious and creamy. The selection of flavours and textures was impressive and most of the ice creams are gluten free and suitable for coeliac's

We bought a honeycomb ice cream and an elderberry and ginger ice cream, they both tasted lovely, if you like ice cream and you are in Caernarfon, then this is the place to visit

The best ice cream I have had in a very long time, very creamy. You really can taste the cream. They had real chunks of fruit in the mango.

Visited here while on holiday in Wales. First impressions were good with a huge selection of ice cream flavours on the menu. However, not all of the flavours are available everyday which was disappointing. The rest of the cafe is very good with nice food and kind waitresses. Would recommend visiting.

Absolutely delicious ice cream, very friendly service, reasonable prices, generous portions and a stone's-throw from the castle. What more needs to be said?! Between the three of us we had mint chocolate, mango and passion fruit, Jaffa cake and chocolate flavours. All were top quality and highly recommend!

This hidden gem must be visited. Service was outstanding and there are numerous flavours to chose from. There is internal and external seats to sit and enjoy but we just strolled accross to the castle and ate it there. Prices are slighlt high but they are delicious. Deffinetly a worthy treat.

The ice cream here is some of the best I have ever had. The strawberry ice cream was smooth and very creamy. High recommend if you are ever in the area.
